COLONIAL FLEET MEMORANDUM
BATTLESTAR ORION
FROM: Scientist Pindar (Khrysos)
TO: Lieutenant Colonel Petra (Petra)

Lieutenant Wake (Wake)
Captain Rozzen (Rozzen)

Captain Lin (Ekho)
Subject: Re: Chemical Weaponry

Colonel Petra,

I appreciate your correspondence. I apologize that I am just replying to it now, as I have otherwise been indisposed. Having spent the past two weeks destroying my cardiovascular, digestive, and endocrine systems with legally-obtainable substances in an attempt to drown out the realities of our current situation, you can understand that I've otherwise been unable to use a computer terminal. Frankly, I'm rather surprised that I am able currently, despite the various stages of detoxification I am going through right now.

Quite frankly, I find our current situation unsolvable, deplorable, and truly horrifying. But what I find it even more troubling is the fact that, conveniently until you want something, you have had no desire or inkling to even check up on civilian members of the fleet to see how they are holding up. You military types carry on as if nothing as happened, and that is a true testament to your training, indoctrination, and de-humanization. Well done.

I must inform you that I had no prior involvement with the Reese, nor with any chemical residue found there, but I offer the full extent of my skills and abilities as I am sufficiently empty inside to no longer allow mind-numbing hysteria to cloud my judgment.

Sincerely yours,
Dr. Khrysos Pindar, PhD Geol kblTF


Khrysos prints out the letter, and with shaky hands begins foldding the octogonal-shaped printout into letter size. Then, with a resigned sigh, the scientist crumples up the note and tosses it into a bin.
